Postal voting

Postal vote at the 2021 elections

Elections will be taking place on Thursday 6 May 2021 for Warwickshire County Council, the Police & Crime Commissioner as well as a number of neighbourhood plan referendums.

The deadline to apply for a postal vote at these elections is 5pm on Tuesday 20 April 2021.

How postal voting works

To apply to vote by post, you need to download, print and fill in the postal vote application form. You can apply for a particular election or referendum, for a specific time period, or for a permanent postal vote.

A postal vote can be sent to your home address or to any other address that you give. Postal votes can be sent overseas, but you need to consider whether there will be enough time to receive and return your ballot paper by election day. Postal votes are sent out a week before election day. Once you have received it, mark your vote on the ballot paper and make sure you send it back so that it arrives by close of poll (which is 10pm on election day). If it arrives later than this your vote won’t be counted. 

Visit the Electoral Commission website for more information about postal voting.
